1. A devotee’s vision of suffering

    When there is suffering given by Krsna, a devotee does not take seriously suffering. A devotee thinks, “It is the favor of Krsna that he has put me into suffering.” They never see suffering as suffering. It is favor of Krsna. That is devotee’s vision. It is exactly like a son who knows his father well. If the father slaps, the son never protests. He knows that “It is good for me.” Similarly, a devotee is never disturbed when there is suffering given by Krsna.
